Rick: How does that look, Marta? Does it look even?

Marta: Wonderful.

Rick: Oh, it's not every day your baby sister turns 1.

Marta: Your mother will be pleased.

Ridge: Wow, this place looks great.

Rick: You're early.

Ridge: Catherine is bringing the kids over later.

Rick: Well, if you're looking for mom, she's upstairs.

Ridge: Actually, I was hoping that you and I could talk.

Rick: I'm busy.

Ridge: Rick, wait. Look, I don't really want there to be any tension at this party.

Rick: Neither do I.

Ridge: Good. Then you won't object to calling a truce?

                        ******************************************************************************************

Brooke: Isn't this exciting? Your first birthday party. Everybody that you love is going to be here.

Little Eric: Could I have cake now?

Amber: Oh, honey, you're gonna have to wait until later, okay? Why don't you play with your toys. He is so excited about the party.

Brooke: So are we. Aren't we? Yes.

Amber: You're so cute. So, Rick said the entire family's invited.

Brooke: Yeah.

Amber: Even Hope's father?

Brooke: No.

Amber: Well, you know, I -- I just wondered because he's been coming around lately.

Brooke: That's over. I don't know what prompted Deacon's sudden interest in his children. But I told him that he can't just stop by whenever he wants.

                        **************************************************************************************

Deacon: Maybe I should've gotten her something else, you know? I mean, do little girls even still play with dolls?

Macy: Hope will love it.

Deacon: Macy, she's only 1. Maybe this thing's too old for her, you know?

Macy: She'll grow into it.

Deacon: I just -- I just want her face to light up when she sees it. I'm just hoping that Brooke lets me stick around that long.

Macy: You're not taking this over to the house, are you?

Deacon: Yeah.

Macy: Look, Deacon, why don't you just give it to her the next time you see her?

Deacon: Macy, this is my daughter's first birthday. And what the hell kind of father would I be if I missed it? Come on, help me.

                        ********************************************************************************************

Intercom: Dr. Kravitz,

you have a visitor

in the main lobby.

Dr. Kravitz,

a visitor in the main lobby.

Jackie: Nicky.

Nick: You're up. How's she doing?

Dr. Brauer: Remarkably well. Your mother is a very lucky woman, Captain Payne.

Jackie: Yes, I am.

Dr. Brauer: You show no signs of post-op complications. And her latest MRI and ct scans are normal.

Nick: So she's out of the woods?

Dr. Brauer: It appears so. I think you can go home in a couple of days.

Jackie: Thank you.

Nick: Thanks. So -- you're gonna be all right.

Jackie: Yeah.

Nick: What a night, huh?

Jackie: For both of us.

Jackie: I'm sure that you have questions for me.

Nick: Maybe we should wait till you get out of here.

Jackie: I think we've waited long enough.

Nick: So it's true.

Jackie: Yeah. Massimo's your father.

Nick: You had an affair with him?

Jackie: Yes.

Nick: He told me that my -- the man that I thought was my father was mean and a drunk.

Jackie: Well, you remember the moods, the arguments.

Nick: And he blackmailed Massimo.

Jackie: Well, yes. But I didn't know about that, not until the other night.

Nick: He told Massimo that you never wanted to see him again.

Jackie: He was very angry with me.

Nick: And Massimo paid him $100 grand to shut up about the affair.

Jackie: Yeah, to protect me.

Nick: I understand that. But how could you -- let me think my father was a good man?

Jackie: What else could I do, Nicky? I mean, your father was gone. As far as I knew, Massimo didn't want anything to do with me. And you were just -- a little boy who needed a man in his life.

Nick: But what about after he died? You steered me to Marone. The stories you told me -- the adventures, the sailing. I idolized the man.

Jackie: Well, you -- you needed a role model, and --

Nick: And you couldn't tell me he was my father? Mother, why?

Jackie: Because I couldn't bear to see you disappointed.

Nick: I always knew there was something missing. Do you know what that feels like? Always looking for that piece of the puzzle? The one that shows you the picture? And you knew where it was. You knew Massimo was my father, yet -- you let me think I was alone. I just -- I just don't know how you could do that.

                        ****************************************************************************************

Rick: You want to call a truce?

Ridge: I think it would mean a lot to your mom. Especially today.

Rick: Yeah. She's got enough stress in her life.

Ridge: Look, Rick, I know you're still upset about Bridget and me. But I want you to know that it was not what you thought. I wouldn't be here right now if it was, Rick, and neither would your sister.

Rick: She isn't coming. You didn't know?

Ridge: Well, we don't talk much lately.

Rick: For mom's sake?

Ridge: Rick, I want her back. I want to make her happy. And I'll do whatever I can to make Brooke feel secure.

Rick: What, she doesn't already?

Ridge: No, but she will. It's just gonna take some time. Like making peace with you. Look, Rick, I know things may not be the way they were. But I also know we'll never get there unless we give it a shot.

Rick: Hey, sport. What's up, buddy? How're you doing? Let me get that for you.

Amber: What's going on over there?

Rick: I'll tell you later.

Amber: Okay.

                        ***************************************************************************************

Ridge: Hey, Logan.

Brooke: Hey, Ridge. Where are your kids?

Ridge: They'll be along soon. Well, thank you. How's the birthday girl?

Brooke: She's oblivious.

Ridge: Can I hold her?

Brooke: Sure.

Ridge: Come here, big girl. Come here.

Brooke: Good girl.

[Laughter]

Ridge: Hit by a duck. I know I probably shouldn't say this to a lady, but you are getting so big.

Brooke: I know. It's hard to believe that it's been a year already.

Ridge: Yeah, lots of changes, huh?

Brooke: Yeah. I'll be right back, okay? I need to tell Marta that the cake arrived.

Ridge: We'll be fine.

Brooke: Okay.

Ridge: Come on, kid.

Brooke: Oh, Marta, you can go ahead and bring down the cake with the rest of the food later.

Marta: Yes, ma'am.

Brooke: Thanks. Oh, honey, this looks great. You did a marvelous job.

Rick: Thank you.

Brooke: How long has Ridge been here?

Rick: For awhile. How are things going for you guys?

Brooke: We're just taking it slow.

Rick: Is that what you want?

Brooke: All I want is for this day to go as peacefully and calmly as possible.

                        ********************************************************************************

Deacon: There we go. Perfect. Look, I'm just gonna drop off the present, I'm gonna kiss Hope happy birthday and I'm gonna take off. Come on, Brooke can't object to that.

Macy: Look, I know you want to see your daughter.

Deacon: And I want to see little D, too.

Macy: Brooke won't appreciate you just dropping by.

Deacon: Yeah, look, I shouldn't have to ask permission to see my kids. This is ridiculous.

Macy: No, you shouldn't. But --

Deacon: Look, I'm gonna be there ten minutes. What's the problem?

Macy: Brooke might she it as a problem. If she thinks that you're antagonizing her --

Deacon: Macy, I think you're looking at this completely backwards.

Macy: I think it's Brooke's perspective that you need to worry about.

Deacon: Okay. What better way to show that I'm a good father than to be there for my daughter's birthday? Come on, it's not a big deal. Trust me, it's gonna be fine.

                        *****************************************************************************************

Jackie: Nicky -- you have to understand. I was just trying to protect you. Massimo had left town, and I didn't want you to feel as rejected as I did.

Nick: You weren't rejected, mother. And neither was I. Do you know what Massimo told me? He would have loved to have known me. He would have loved to have been my father.

Jackie: And I would have loved that, too. But your father --

Nick: No! Your husband!

Jackie: My husband, your father -- he manipulated both of us.

Nick: But he didn't keep secrets from me, mother. You did. My whole life, you chose not to tell me anything.

Jackie: I couldn't.

Nick: Why? Were you ashamed?

Jackie: No. I was never ashamed of you.

Nick: Well, then what was it? Was it Massimo? He believed you never wanted to see him again. Was that it?

Jackie: No.

Nick: Do you not have feelings for the man?

Jackie: Yes, I have feeling for him! I loved -- him. Nicky, I loved him. Oh, god, I loved him.

                        *************************************************************************************

Ridge: Okay. Here's your own personal umbrella.

Brooke: Oh, look.

Ridge: What do you think?

Brooke: Oh, that's great.

Ridge: Yeah?

Brooke: Thank you.

Marta: Come here. Okay, you're going to sit here with me, and you're going to help me to separate, okay?

                        ***********************************************************************************

Amber: So, what were you and Ridge talking about?

Rick: Mom. He wanted to tell me that he's still committed to her.

Amber: It looks like they're working things out.

Rick: Looks like it.

Amber: Well, that's good.

Rick: I hope so.

Amber: You're still not sure?

Rick: I'm feeling better about it.

Amber: Wow. He must've made some pitch, huh?

Rick: Mom could do worse.

                        ***********************************************************************************************

Brooke: Well, everybody should be arriving soon.

Ridge: We should probably go get the food.

Brooke: If we all go up there together, we could bring it down all at once. How about it? Marta, could you watch the kids for a minute?

Marta: Sure.

Brooke: Thank you. There you go. Rubber duckie. Okay. Amber and Rick, can you help please? We'll get the food.

                        *******************************************************************************************

Macy: I tried to warn him, mother. I told him not to go over there.

Sally: But Deacon thinks there won't be problem, hmm?

Macy: No, he thinks it's no big deal. His daughter's having a birthday. He wants to give her a present.

Sally: Sounds reasonable.

Macy: But I was there, mother, when Brooke warned him to stay away. And she was serious. Can you believe that? Denying a father access to his children? What kind of monster would do that?

Sally: Well, my darling girl, you should know better than anybody that sympathy and understanding for other people has never been Brooke's long suit.

Macy: I just don't want deacon to get hurt the way that i did. And I don't -- I don't want those children to get hurt either.

Sally: I know you're doing your very best for them. And, actually, your involvement in all of this is going to be very good for those children -- and for Deacon. I'm just not absolutely sure it's going to be good for you.

Macy: Deacon needs my help, mother. And if Brooke reacts the way that I think she will, he's gonna need it more than ever.

                        ***********************************************************************************

Deacon: Hi. I'm sorry, I didn't mean to barge right in. Nobody -- nobody answered the doorbell. I've got a present for Hope.

Marta: You're here for the party?

Deacon: Hey, you, come here.

Little Eric: Daddy!

Deacon: Oh, how're you doing, pal? What's going on?

Little Eric: We're gonna have cake.

Deacon: You're gonna have cake? What kind? Chocolate? You don't know. You know what? I bet chocolate is hope's favorite. What do you say we go over and say hi to her, and then you can help her open up her present, huh? Oh. Hey, angel. You remember me? Huh? Oh, come here, baby. Hi. Look at the birthday girl. Hi, baby. Hey, hey.

Brooke: Deacon?

Deacon: Hey.

Rick: Hey, Eric, why don't you come over here, buddy?

Deacon: Happy birthday, baby. Yeah.

Rick: Here. Eric, why don't you go over to the food table with Marta and put out the hot dog buns, okay?

Amber: Yeah, you know, I think I'm gonna help him.

Rick: Okay.

Brooke: What are you doing here?

Deacon: Look, I just stopped by to bring hope a gift for her birthday. I didn't realize you guys were having a party.

Rick: That's because you weren't invited, Deacon. I'd like you to leave.

                        **************************************************************************************

Jackie: I didn't think that he wanted me, Nicky. He never phoned. He never wrote. But I loved him -- still -- with all my heart. Honey, I never meant to hurt you. You should have had so much more, you know? I thought that I was making the right choice. But I should have called Massimo. I should have told him about you, that he had a wonderful son. Instead, I robbed you of your father. But I promise you -- I promise you that I'm gonna make it up to you. I swear, I'm gonna make it up to you.

Nick: You know, it's okay. I understand. I love you. And I forgive you.
